Chevys at Las Vegas

Bowtie Brigade Hits Jackpots

Normally drag racers and everyone else figures that the odds are good that when you make a trip to Vegas and run up and down the strip, you will go home with less cash in your kick than you had when you came. But those members of the Bowtie Brigade who played the field at the SummitRacing.com Nationals held at Vegas’s other strip,  The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, beat the odds and came away with cash and a coveted Wally.

Photographers Tim Marshall and James Drew were covering the event for us and sent this report on the Sportsman racers.

Wheat Ridge, Colorado, racer Lou Ficco Jr. drove his B/AP  '04 Cavalier to a 7.519/180.38 pass on his 8.12 index to take the Comp eliminator win over Alan Freese’s C/AA 2000 Firebird. Freese ran a 7.606/178.24 on his 8.16 index.        

The Super Stock finals was an all-Chevy affair with California racer Greg Luneack leaving first due to his 11.20 dial with his SS/KA ’65 Nova Wagon while Tony Mandella had to sit in his ’90 Camaro dialed at a 9.97 and watch Luneack cruise down the track. The race was won at the tree as Luneack recorded a .012 light to Mandella’s .041.  Luneack ran a 11.211/116.49 to bury Mandella’s  9.972/133.00.
